How quickly can Six Month Smiles treatment straighten my teeth?

The conventional, outdated metal braces of old are composed of uncomfortable brackets, but Six Month Smiles treatment offers improved orthodontic results in a more comfortable fashion. At an expedited rate, to boot! So, while conventional braces could require 16 months to as many as 24 months, the Six Month Smiles program is true to its name and can give you a wonderfully transformed smile in approximately six months.

That’s a fraction of the straightening results offered by more outdated orthodontic options. Though, of course, that’s a general figure. And while you’re likely to enjoy more effective results in a fraction of the time, your exact timeline will vary, as it does for all patients. These timeline variations depend on multiple factors, including your dental health, structure, and lifestyle factors.

But that’s why we’re here, so you don’t have to worry about any of that. We’ve helped countless past patients, and we’re excited to help shape up your smile. And the first step is devising the optimal treatment plan for you and your specific needs.

How does Six Month Smiles work?

Six Month Smiles is a short-term orthodontic procedure in one of two formats. The first utilizes transparent brackets and tooth-colored wires to bring about desired dental results without drawing attention to itself. Alternatively, the second version uses clear aligners, which are equally discreet and provide the results patients are looking for.

These formats are suitable for individuals 16 years and over, and they owe their advanced results to a new mode of action: targeting only the teeth that are visible when one smiles. These quick-acting results are excellent for those who’d like a quicker, simpler, and straighter smile.

You’ll also benefit from our detail-attentive patient service. We’ll begin by mapping your teeth and other dental tissues through digital x-rays and other modern imaging techniques. Then, depending on whether you face mild crowding or gapping, or your teeth require more movement, we’ll devise the optimal Six Month Smile strategy.

In addition to improved comfort and faster straightening, this procedure is more convenient for patients. You’ll require fewer office visits, about one every four weeks, so you’ll save time and money while achieving the orthodontic improvements that many past patients have loved.
